Think about it. When Mr. Rogers arrives at the beginning of the episode, '''the viewer is already there''' in his house. When Mr. Rogers leaves at the end of the episode, he '''leaves the viewer there'''. The viewer is obviously strapped to a rack on the FourthWall, which must have some wheels and a mechanism to move it into the kitchen and back when the need be. Obviously short trips down the street (with Fred) are allowed, and either Mister [=McFeely=] and Mr. Negri are in on the plot, or the viewer has a bad case of StockholmSyndrome.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: The viewer is Mr. Rogers' (non-human) pet.]]
A less dramatic and disturbing take on the above observation is that the viewer is simply Mr. Rogers' dog, cat, hamster, etc. We can rule out fish, as he announces when he is "feeding the fish" and does not offer any fish food to the viewer, so we can infer that the viewer is not aquatic. A very lazy and well-behaved dog or cat seems the most likely. Mr. Rogers is just a weird old guy with no friends, who spends his free time talking to his pet about random trivia facts, and playing with his puppets.

[[WMG: Mr. Rogers has become a {{Psychopomp}} for children who died in traumatic circumstances.]]
I can easily see him as well-fitted for this task in the hereafter.


*** Seconded. I'm a Christian (though not Catholic) and I'd head to the Vatican to see that.

to:

*** Seconded. I'm a an active Christian troper (though not Catholic) Catholic, Presbyterian, same as he was though I wish I had half his goodness) and I'd head to the Vatican to see that.

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG: He won the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny NON-violently.]]
The reason his sweater was blood-stained is that he was caring for the wounded and comforting the dying. The rest gradually, one-by-one, saw his kind deeds and saw that he was better than them, so they ceased the violence out of shame and declared him the winner. It is the only explanation that fits his personality, and thus the only one I will accept.



to:

* Which would make Lady Elaine Fairchild Asuka.

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG: Mr. Rogers is a Daedric Prince.]]
The neighborhood is his plane, the population of Makebelieve are his daedric minions.


[[WMG: Mr. Rogers could have been able to wield the [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipisMagic Element of Kindness]].]]

to:

[[WMG: Mr. Rogers could have been able to wield at least the [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipisMagic Element of Kindness]].]]



to:

** Agreed. Also, it would be unwise to even joke about the above.




to:

** Active Catholic troper here (of the "practically ethnically Catholic/Catholic for all eternity" variety). I would not only approve of Mr. Rogers's canonization, I would do whatever I could to make it to the Vatican if/when that happens.

[[WMG: Mr. Rogers could have been able to wield the [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipisMagic Element of Kindness]].]]
Maybe even all the Elements of Harmony.



to:

* If the neighborhood of make believe is inside his house through that tunnel trolley passes through, then it truly is BiggerOnTheInside.

Added DiffLines:

* Well, if there's any non-Catholic who could earn a sainthood from the Catholic Church, it's him.


* He also beat everyone in TheUltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny, so he must be Lord President.

to:

* He also beat everyone in TheUltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny, Music/TheUltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny, so he must be Lord President.

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG: Mister Rogers will someday be declared a saint by the Catholic Church.]]
Oh, come on. Of course he will. He's the kindest man who ever lived.
